Patient safety is a primary focus within JONA, especially this month. Articles highlighting patient-centered design, identifying and evaluating care omissions, and culture change through applying safeguards from the aviation industry are among the many evidence-based projects discussed within the current issue.
During this season’s hustle and bustle, take a few moments to visit www.jonajournal.com. Here, you can quietly “shop around” for content of interest to you and your team members. And as always, thanks for your interest in JONA.
